Barbra's tour coming to an end - 2 shows left!

Hi everyone:

I arrived back home today, after what can only be described as one of the GREATEST few weeks of my life. I was lucky enough to see Barbra LIVE in London, Amsterdam, Cologne and Berlin... and all three shows were OFF THE HOOK.

Here's a photo from London - Backstage with Barbra and my parents:

Barbra sounded perfect. There are really no words. Someone said to me "Like a fine wine", and that is so true. The show always seems to change as the tour develops... and it always seems to be for the BETTER. For instance, Barbra performed "SEND IN THE CLOWNS" in Berlin last night. She hadn't performed this song for 13 years.

Sadly there are only two shows left. Both of them will be in TEL AVIV on June 20/22. Barbra has NEVER performed LIVE in Israel before... so you can imagine how SPECIAL they will be. I have to be honest... GERMANY had the best, and most interactive audiences... so they will be hard to beat... but I'm sure the Israelis can show them just how it's done!

I will be writing a report on the final shows... along with an overview of the whole tour, but do check out Matt's fabulous website at www.barbra-archives.com for all the latest on the tour.

It was a pleasure to meet a lot of you in London, Amsterdam, Cologne and Berlin. I've had one of the best times of my life, no exaggeration.

Anyway, it's back to reality for me!

For those of you who are attending the final shows - ENJOY! Savour EVERY moment. These concerts are RARE... and so special.

Barbra's 5-city, 8-show "Micro-tour" (as she put it last night) kicked off at the O2 arena in London last night! I was there - and it's certainly a night I will never forget.

Barbra's voice... there are no words... She opened with ON A CLEAR DAY.. and the notes were something else!

 For the record... she sang EVERGREEN like never before... She took it to another level... To say it was "spine-tingling" wouldn't do it justice.

The audience were also treated to live performance snippet of WOMAN IN LOVE (The FIRST time she has ever sang the song LIVE), which was great fun.

If you don't have tickets yet for the remaining 7 shows... and can make it.. do not hesitate.

The golden-notes she produced last night are invaluable. You can put no cost on the experience of hearing Barbra live. No recording device, YouTube video or DVD will capture quite the magic.

For those of you who couldn't be there...
